by

Newsday blogger John Riley accuses the McCain campaign of sending out anti-miscegenation signals in its ad, saying that Britney Spears and Paris Hilton were chosen as top celebrities because they are “two sexually available white women.” Ross Douthat pushes back against this nonsense: “For many people, comparing Obama to Tiger Woods or David Beckham or J.K. Rowling would be a compliment.
